Johanna Jean Poffenberger was born September 15, 1934 in Adel, Iowa to Albert and Verdie (Wicks) Poffenberger. She grew up and received her education in Adel graduating in the class of 1953.

Following graduation on June 3, 1953 Johanna was united in marriage to Harlan Henry Dippold. Jo continued to live in Adel while Harlan was serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Once returning home the couple started a family and was blessed with two children, Terry and Connie. Jo made a career working for the State of Iowa in the Department of Human Services and retired as a Supervisor.

In her free time Jo was an avid reader of a variety of books. She enjoyed sewing which included two sport jackets for Harlan, and collecting snow globes. She also loved the holidays and decorating for them. Most of all she loved just spending time with Harlan, her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who will all miss her and held a special place in her heart.

Survivors include her husband of 60 years, Harlan of Urbandale; children, Terry (Mary) Dippold of Urbandale and Connie (James) Wayman of Des Moines; nine grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; sister, Maxine Mylan; and a sister-in-law, Delores Poffenberger.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Harold and Kenny Poffenberger; and sister, Nelda Powers.
